Top Tips for Choosing a School for Your Child

Published by Sarah Hughes on

Finding the right school for your child can impact how they do in their studies, the friends they make and the success in their final exams. It defines a child’s future, so it’s understandable to feel overwhelmed about the choice of school for them.

To help you figure out which school could be the best choice for you and your child, here are some top tips from this private school in Cambridge.

Look at the school’s exam results

One of the first things parents look at is the school’s exam results. It’s important to have good grades and it will help your child reach the grades that they deserve. It will give you a lot more reassurance in giving your child the best opportunities in school if you know that there is a big opportunity for good grades.

The school curriculum

In a private school, in comparison to a public school, you will see the variety in the curriculum. But there are variations in public school curriculum as well and that can impact how well a child does in exams and in general studies. A variation of subjects, and knowledge of what will be covered in each subject can help you decide if that’s the best choice for your child.

Further support in school

Your child should be feeling safe in their surroundings, especially when they spend 5 days a week in school. Your child’s school should have programmes in place to help provide support to each student to help them with mental health management and their confidence skills. Extra-curricular activities will also be helpful for your child to help discover their interests and passions.

You want your child to be happy and healthy in school, where they’re going to really progress and develop life skills, learn on lessons and exceed beyond expectations.
